The world's first qudit quantum processor takes shape
As if qubits were not confusing enough, we now have qudits to reckon with. Qudits replace the two-level qubit – the unit that can be a one, a zero or both at the same time – with a multi-level computational unit (d>2). It enables a larger state space to store and process information and the ability to perform multiple operations simultaneously with the same unit. The EU-funded QIPID project will develop the world’s first universal qudit quantum processor using trapped calcium ions and four of their electronic levels (d=4). Application to quantum simulation will highlight the pioneering platform’s potential.
